It's Two-fer Tasty Tuesday! Grab a Plate.

We're eating healthier and getting in some exercise in the Ledbetter household, and that extends to the S.O.'s of said family. Last week, daughter's sweet boyfriend cooked this chicken for us, and it was deeeee-licious! 

Bubba's Crispy Oven Fried Chicken

1 package chicken breasts (cut into strips) 
Cornflakes (fill large Ziplock 2/3 full and crush up)
8-oz. reduced fat shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2 packets dry Ranch dip
Egg whites for dredging

Coat chicken strips in egg white, then put into cornflakes. Shake well to coat. Spray cookie sheet well with non-stick spray and add coated chicken strips. Bake on 350 for 45 minutes or until brown and crispy. 

**To complete the meal, we added baked sweet potato fries; asparagus, squash & zucchini medley (recipe below); fresh green beans, and corn. A great and filling supper! 

Grilled Veggie Trio

1 bunch fresh asparagus 
2 zucchini and 2 yellow squash (cleaned & cut into strips) 
2 T. pure coconut oil (or olive oil) 
Sea salt, pepper, minced or squeeze garlic to taste 
Juice from one lemon or concentrate 
1 1/2 T. dry ranch dressing 
Parmesan cheese 

Saute veggies in a large pan in oil of your choice, stirring to mix in all other seasonings, and until done but still crisp. **The coconut oil is great for your "good cholesterol" and adds great flavor. Cover with lid and simmer on low for @ 15 minutes, continuing to stir. Serve hot for a healthy and tasty side dish.

Looks so good, all of it! And I think I could cook most of it, even the chicken. But Whole Foods is so close by with that yummy roasted chicken... I will try actually cooking the veggies and let you know how it goes. They look goooood (That is good in several syllables!) Speaking of cooking, I am trying to figure out how to get my blog picture of myself to show in my comments. I guess you will know I did it when you see me! :) I know it's a very old picture, but can't see my face anyway. That was such a fun time in my life, staying with Maw-Maw out in the country, helping her cook, trying to slip outside to see her neighbor's grandson... Now I wish I had some chicken, but only have string cheese in the fridge! Hugs to you.

Oops, that darn Google is a mind reader! I submitted my comment and there I was, cooking at Maw-Maw's. I really used to be a good cook...

Lots of people don't realize that over-fried chicken can be just as delicious and so much more healthy. Yum!
